  • When I look into the looking glass
    I'm always sure to see -
    No matter how I dodge about -
    Me, looking out at me.

    I often wonder as I look,
    And those strange features spy,
    If I, in there, think I'm as plain
    As I, out here, think I.

    - CJ Dennis, 'The Looking Glass'.
